Muskrats, I like the smell of a muskrat pelt. Next comes moles. I get a lot of satisfaction killing one as they try to ruin my lawn. Mink used to thrill me. Now I get more pleasure catching possums as they are delicious baked with sweet tators.

Muskrats have probably always been my favorite. The problem is that they have basically not existed in my area of southeast PA for the last twenty-thirty years. I really wish we had the numbers we used to.

So I target my second favorite; the red fox. Around here they are plentiful, easy to catch and easy to put up. I have found alternative markets for my catch and have been averaging around $16.00 while I see a bunch of folks letting there's go for $5.00-$6.00 averages at last season's Pennsylvania Trapper's Association auctions. I would stop trapping them before I sold them that cheap.


Eh...wot?

Coyotes for land critters. Beaver are a blast for water critters. But I'm always pretty happy when I get an otter.

I never even tried to catch a wolverine but It would be pretty cool to catch one. Caught a couple of wolves and some lynx.
It would have to be beavers for me.

Red fox/grey fox, cats then yotes. But nothing better than being on a big slough trapping a ton of rats
